Anila Agha speaks @ IMA

7:00-8:30 pm

free, details

In 2014, Herron Professor and artist Anila Quayyum Agha took home both the Juried and the Public Vote Grand Prizes from ArtPrize. Her winning entry was an installation titled Intersections, a 6.5 foot cube made of laser-etched wood that is suspended from the ceiling and fills the room with shadows and patterns from a single light source. Influenced by the geometrical patterning in Islamic sacred spaces, the work invites the viewer to confront the contradictory nature of all intersections, while simultaneously exploring boundaries.

Join Agha and ArtPrize Director of Exhibitions, Kevin Buist for a public conversation, moderated by Travis DiNicola, about ArtPrize, the ground-breaking art competition and Agha’s experience as a participant, and ultimately, a winner.

In addition this evening will launch the Indianapolis ArtPrize Pitch Night, including a short info session about the application process and requirements led by Kevin Buist.
